NCBTMB-approved Continuing Education: Himalayan Salt Stone Massage

Earn certification with NCBTMB-approved CE hours — Learn Himalayan Salt Stone Massage

Special message from Ann Brown, Saltability founder: "I love that we have NCBTMB-approval to offer certification for our Himalayan Salt Stone Massage course — educating the single LMT to advance his or her practice and career or working with spa directors to train teams of up to 100 therapists."

Course Description: This course teaches a safe and effective approach for heated, Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. It will enable the therapist to work comfortably using the stones to perform a therapeutic and revitalizing service. This will include the set-up as well as the care and cleaning of the stones. We will explore the therapeutic use and benefits of using hot and cold temperatures on the body as well as any presenting contraindications. It will also include a full-body approach to delivering the massage with the proper amount of lubricant and place a special emphasis on body mechanics and ergonomics. The purpose of the class is to ensure the student has a full understanding of the use of the stones as a therapeutic tool, ensuring the highest level of core competency a therapist will need to provide a stellar client experience. 


Why learn Himalayan Salt Stone Massage from Saltability?
Because it's a "game changer."
Read a review of Saltability Himalayan Salt Stone Massage from Michael Tompkins, past ISPA chairman and executive recruiter, Hutchinson Consulting:
"I'm not sure when I realized it was a game changer. It could have been when I first walked into the treatment room and saw the beautifully glowing Himalayan salt stones, but it wasn't. In fact, it took talking to Saltability founder Ann Brown, seeing the stones displayed in the treatment room, having not one but TWO salt stone massages, and finally using them with my own therapist hands before I realized how big this new trend will be."

      "As a massage therapist of more than 10 years, I was very satisfied with the 'traditional' basalt stones that I have been using since the beginning of my career. I was very skeptical of these new Himalayan salt stones and how they would stand up to the test of time, but they are incredibly durable and easy to use. I don’t know if it is the minerals in the stone or the fact that negative ions are being released, but I couldn’t believe how long the relief in the muscles lasted. I have been using the Himalayan salt stones regularly for 9 months now, and I can honestly say that I never want to give or receive a stone massage any other way." — Eric Jensen, spa services supervisor, Red Mountain Resort
